Tamang Heritage Trek Package

The trekking to Tamang Heritage is an opportunity to discover the real beauty of rural mountain village of Nepal with unique culture and lifestyle of Tamangs which is one of the major ethnic groups in Nepal. Our itinerary for Tamang heritage trek is designed with the beautiful villages and viewpoints from the previously restricted areas of Langtang Region. It is a trek to the unexplored area of Langtang region where we can enjoy the majestic Himalayan view, locals and learn about their culture which goes back to hundreds of years. The craftsmanship, unique culture and customs, ancient Tibetan monasteries, beauty of rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls, snow-capped peaks from Langtang, Ganesh and Manaslu range, local fort, and exquisite local architecture of the Tamang homes are the major highlights of this trek.


The trail we follow for is an exciting trekking route in Langtang Region which is culturally rich area, inhabited by the Tamangs. Tamang people are some of the warmest and most welcoming people in Nepal. The word “Tamang” originally, meant “Horse –trader”, which may very well have been their original vacation. Nowadays they earn their living, partly by farming, partly by hiring their service as porter to mountaineers. They are extremely sturdy and resistant. During the winter season, they spend much time weaving their characteristic grayish quilts and wide-sleeved woolen vests; other might paint Thang-kas. Dawa Dangbo Chhiju (in February), Chuwa Chhiju (November), Yarsang (early June), Dukpa Chhiju (August) and Lhosar (February) are the some of the major festivals celebrated by the Tamangs community in this region. Marriages are generally pre-arranged. There is no polyandry among Tamang as the case within the Sherpa communities. The dead are usually cremated on the top of the hill (may be a survival of a Tibetan tradition).


Our trek starts from Syabrubesi which takes about 7 hours of drive from Kathmandu. After our arrival at Syabrubesi, we walk towards to Gatlang and Tatopani and then to Lama Hotel via Thuman and Briddim villages. From Lama Hotel we continue our trek to Kanyanjing Gompa passing beautiful village of Langtang along the trail. After the trek we take 6 hours drive back to Kathmandu and end of the package.

    • PREPARE FOR TREK
    • When to go for trek in Nepal:
      Trekking in Nepal is possible to do at any time of the year but it depends on where you are planning to trek. There is always somewhere to go and something to do in Nepal, whatever the weather

      Autumn season from September to November when the monsoon ends and days become crystal clear. This is the real feature of the autumn and winter months. The mornings and especially the evenings can feel particularly brisk, but in sunshine the conditions are ideal for trekking.

      Trekking during the winter Season from December to February is ideal for trekking at lower elevations, generally below 3000 meters because this season is noted for occasional snowfall at higher elevations. You must be careful planning trek with high passes for this period because the high passes and ridges are may be blocked with snow and footpaths impassable.

      Spring season is the pre-monsoon period that extends from March to end of the May when the days can become hazy, with the distance view obscured, and clouds are a common features if the afternoons and the both days and nights are getting warmer. The real treat in the Spring months are the flowers, especially the rhododendrons.

      ummer Season (June to August): Summer months really continue up to mid-September making travel wet and warm. These times are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. During this season, you can trek in the rain-shadow (places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains) areas north of the Himalaya like Mustang and Dolpo.

    • EXPERIENCE AND FITNESS FOR TREK IN NEPAL
    • If you really want to enjoy tour trekking holiday in Nepal, get fit before the trek not on the trek. Arriving in Nepal out of shape having taken no exercise for months, possibly years, is asking for trouble. Nepal, like like in general, is full of ups and downs. Run walk, swim, bike, do circuits, whatever but exercise before you to. You don’t need to be marathon-fit, but you will enjoy it more if your legs have reasonable muscle tone.

    • CLOTHING AND BOOTS FOR TREK:
    • Clothing:
      For trekking in Nepal you don’t need a lot of specialist equipment, indeed, most porters wear little more than a cotton shirt and trousers. But for Westerners the choice is wider. Light cotton trousers or loose skirt o shorts, with a t-shits and a pair or running shoes or lightweight boots is the norm on most treks. In the morning and early evening this might be supplemented by a fleece sweater and pants, or perhaps a light down jacket or vest. It’s usually only on the higher treks or between November and January that wool shirts and thermal underwear become necessary. Unless it is overcast or windy, the day is usually warm, but the early mornings and the evenings can be very cold so, unless you want to retire early to your sleeping bag, take warm clothing, a down parka, gloves and wool hat.

      Boots:
      If you have favorite pair of comfortable walking boots, stick with them. If you are looking for a pair for first time, ask yourself the following: will I be going above the snowline, or on very rough and rocky terrain? A specialist retailer should be able to advise you on the most suitable boot once he know your plan. Normally fabric upper boots, although generally less durable or waterproof than leather boots, are ideal for most trekking.

    • TREKKING EQUIPMENTS:
    • You don't need special equipments to go to trek in the most of the regions of Nepal. A comfortable hiking boot, a sleeping bag and a few clothes as per the travelling season are the basic things you need. It is best to travel light. Please note that most of the equipments we need for trek in Nepal is possible to buy or hire in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

    • TREKKING PERMITS, NATIONAL PARK ENTRY FEE AND TIMS CARD:
    • Most of the treks in Nepal requires permits/ conservation area entry tickets. When you book your trek with us, all the necessary trekking permits will be arranged from our team.

    • RESCUE INSURANCE:
    • If you are coming for short and easy trek, you can travel with normal regular insurance but if you are planning for trekking in high passes/ remote area you must check if your insurance covers trekking activities and the conditions or not. It would be very costly to pay a helicopter rescue at 5000 meters.
